On Valentine's Day, pledge your heart. On this edition of The Buck Stops Here, we talk about organ donation. Five lakh people in India die every year because of the non-availability of organs. The rate of organ donation in India is just 0.5 donors per 10 lakh people as per 2013 data. Everyone can save up to seven lives by donating organs. At any given time, there are eight to 10 brain-dead potential donors in intensive care units of any major city. On the show, we look at how laws in the country have changed and how, with this, there is a real chance at change.
